LI Press May 27 1942: Edward Mandel Education Loses a Friend EDUCATORS throughout the city will mourn the passing of Edward Mandel of Forest Hills, who celebrated the golden anniversary of his start in the teaching profession in 1938. Death came to him in retirement, but for 51 years he helped to mould the educational policies of the city whose school system is envied throughout the country. Never a conformist, he fought boldly for the things he believed in, and the school system is the better today for his vigorous campaigns. Mr. Mandel often boasted that he never ran from a fight, and in his long and colorful career he made some enemies, but when at last he reached the golden milestone, 50 years in the school system, 3,000 persons attended a luncheon in his honor. Queens has lost an esteemed citizen and joins the teaching profession in mourning his death.
